Rural Roots Revival:

Farmer Shawn & Daughter Maizey (14 yrs) have been teaming up to play Shawn's original songs and some well-selected covers that emphasize connection to the earth, a heart-centered life, and their ever-deepening rural roots.  Shawn and Maizey play locally at restaurants, benefits, churches, and coffeehouses. Contact them here or on Facebook to book or for more info.

You can listen to Shawn's albums on Spotify, if you have membership (It's free to sign up).  Click on the album below to enjoy:
